vCenter will always use the from address that you have configured in the vCenter settings. If you wish to get alerts using different from addresses, check out VEBA, you can create custom functions to achieve the same result.

To edit the Mail settings from vSphere use the following: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/7.0/com.vmware.vsphere.vcenter.configuration.doc/GUID-467D... 

For the case to edit the "From" which is the sender, In Mail sender text box  enter the sender account information.
